thank you very much.
I am afraid even Excel could not help you here . The problem is that the field that you are sorting on (author_sort) when you click the authors column header contains incorrect data, and that is what the sort is occurring on.

The tweaks help with this as they define the relationship between what is shown in the display (author) and the underlying sort (author_sort) fields.
